How can finance ease cashflow pressures?

A business loan can give you an injection of working capital that you can use to ease cash flow pressures. You could use it to pay for expected larger energy bills, help with payroll, franchising or any other way that you think is best for your business.

Asset Refinance is a great way to free up cash tied up in valuable assets such as commercial property, machinery or vehicles with good resale value. How this works is that you will refinance your asset and in return, you will receive an injection of working capital and the finance company will take ownership of the asset and you will make monthly payments back to the finance company.

Invoice finance is a way of lending money based on what your customers owe your business. Rather than waiting days or weeks for your invoices to be paid by your customers, lenders advance you most of the value immediately. 

Start producing your own energy

One method to decrease your energy bill is to start producing your own energy. If it’s possible, you could install solar panels, biomass boilers, heat pumps or anaerobic digesters.

Many commercial property owners and business owners have already switched to a renewable energy source because of the savings they will be making on their monthly energy bills.

Renewable energy assets can be financed therefore business owners will be able to make steps towards decreasing their energy bills, keep a healthy cash flow and pay monthly affordable instalments for a greener energy source.
